Versatile valve solution introduced

THE BUTTERFLY VALVE 565 The valve provides exceptional performance while reducing installation, maintenance and replacement costs

DEMANDING ENVIRONMENT The valve is suitable for demanding industrial environments, and achieves PN16 for sizes DN50-DN150, PN10 for DN200-DN250, and PN6 for DN300

FACILITATING UPGRADES The valve also facilitates the option for upgrading to electric actuators, normal and smart, or pneumatic actuators

Combining lightweight construction, modular capabilities, corrosion resistance and high-quality materials, industrial equipment supplier Instru-Serve’s butterfly valve 565 provides “exceptional performance” while reducing installation, maintenance and replacement costs.

Manufactured at manufacturer Georg Fischer's Seewis facility, in Switzerland, the valve is considered a modern solution that offers numerous advantages over traditional metal butterfly valves, says Instru-Serve sales and project manager Kevin Lindsay and Georg Fischer Piping Systems (GF International) sales manager Holger Hoffmann.

Lindsay and Hoffman explain that the butterfly valve 565 “revolutionises” industrial valve solutions with its high operating pressure, reduced torque requirements and compatibility with various actuators.

It features a fibre-reinforced polyamide valve body (wafer) and polyvinylidene difluoride (PVDF) with fibre-reinforced polyamide disc, making it up to 60% lighter than its steel counterparts.

“This lightweight design eliminates the need for additional support and bracing typically required for metal butterfly valves in plastic piping systems,” Lindsay and Hoffman comment.

The butterfly valve 565 also offers versatile modular options for enhanced functionality, as it can be easily equipped with electrical position indication for manual operation, or fitted with electric and pneumatic actuators for automation purposes.

The 565 is also not prone to corrosion, owing to the body and PVDF disc.

These materials ensure long-lasting performance and make the valve suitable for various applications, including those involving harmful substances.

Additionally, the butterfly valve 565 requires significantly lower torque to open and close, compared with metal butterfly valves.

Further, the valve offers high operating pressure ratings, making it suitable for demanding industrial environments.
